If you need new license plate tabs for your vehicle, you might consider swinging by Cub Foods. The Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicles Services, or DVS, has opened six more automated, stand-alone kiosks dedicated to vehicle tabs in Cub Foods stores.
Tabs and related documents can be printed on-site using scanning and touchscreen technology. The department rolled out its first self-serve “DVS Now” vehicle registration kiosks last December at the South St. Paul and Rochester Crossroads deputy registrars’ offices. In July, the two ATM-like kiosks were moved to Cub Foods locations in West St. Paul and Rochester.
The eight kiosks — operating as of Nov. 16 — are located at the Cub Foods at 15350 Cedar Ave. in Apple Valley, 8150 Wedgewood Lane in Maple Grove, 250 57th Ave. NE in Fridley, 1177 Clarence St. in St. Paul, 5301 36th Ave. N. in Crystal, 3930 Silver Lake Road in St. Anthony, 2001 S. Robert St. in West St. Paul, and 1021 15th Ave. SE in Rochester.
For tabs, customers can scan the barcode on their renewal notice or provide their address, license plate number, insurance provider, policy number and expiration date, their county, and either the account identification number from the renewal notice or their house number, as well as the last three characters of their VIN.
The kiosks take credit and debit cards, and charge a $4.95 fee per vehicle and a 2.49% credit card processing fee.
